Sailing Alone Around the World

Joshua Slocum

Sailing Alone Around the World by Joshua Slocum

On April 24, 1895, Captain Joshua Slocum set out on a three-year journey to circumnavigate the world alone by boat. Crossing the Pacific and Atlantic oceans in his sloop, the Spray, Slocum visited South Africa, South America, and Australia before returning home as the first man to successfully sail around the world solo. Slocum's memoir tells of pirate attacks, gale-force winds, strange hallucinations and the ever-present threat of shipwreck. Restless and land-weary, Slocum set sail again in 1909 and was never heard from. He was declared legally dead in 1924.

The Ringer

Anonymous

The Ringer by AnonymousIn April of 2012 Astronomers Paul Davies and Robert Wagner who are affiliated with Arizona State University, filmed five large UFOs flying over the surface of the moon. Even though Paul Davies is a theoretical physicist and a cosmologist who is now involved in astrobiology, and Robert Wagner is affiliated with ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration, U.S. mainstream media did not consider this scientific research to be newsworthy. While scientific discoveries of this magnitude should be front page news, they are purposely buried, preventing any educative knowledge regarding extraterrestrials....

Healing Doses of Danger

Ladislav Sedlak

Healing Doses of Danger by Ladislav SedlakThe text of this book does not fit any category. It's like listening to a storyteller around the campfire rather reading the book. The author does not use any common literary devices as gradation, dramatization or emotionalism. In spite of that, his book made such a strong impact on me that I still remember clearly every story.

Using a simple road map, without a tent or a sleeping bag, a mobile phone or a watch, Stanley proves to himself that roughing it in cardboard houses, en-route, is perhaps every bit as grim as you think it could be.
